BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Freshman Yarden Garzon scored 16 points and No. 4 Indiana held Morehead State to four two-point baskets in rolling to an 87-24 victory, the third-largest winning margin in the program's history.

The only other larger winning margins were 100-24 decision over Taylor on Feb. 21, 1975 (76 points) and 111-47 win over Nichols State on Nov. 10, 2019 (64 points).

The Hoosiers (11-0) limited Morehead State to 18% shooting in winning by 63 points.

Sara Scalia added 13 points and Sydney Parrish and Mackenzie Holmes 12 each for Indiana, which shot 56% from the field.

Veronica Charles led Morehead State (4-7) with six points on 2-of-14 shooting.

Indiana ended the first quarter on a 16-0 run in taking a 28-4 lead. The margin grew to 44-12 by halftime.

Indiana's other wins at home have been by margins of 37, 56, 35, 37, 24. Its one close game was 65-61 decision over Illinois in their Big Ten opener Dec. 4.

Coach Teri Moren cleared the Hoosiers' bench, with 10 players logging between 10 and 28 minutes. Garzon's output came in 18 minutes.

Indiana is approaching the program record for most successive wins to open a season: 15-0 in 1972, the first year for women's basketball at the school. The Hoosiers were 14-0 in 2013-14.

BIG PICTURE

Morehead State: The Eagles are 4-1 at home but have been overmatched elsewhere. Their 0-6 road record includes losses by 47, 25, 19 and 63 points.

Indiana: The Hoosiers continue to adjust without Grace Berger, an All-America candidate who missed her fifth game because of a knee injury. There is no timetable for her return.
